ABSTRACT

Calciphylaxis also known as Calcific uremic arteriolopathy (CUA), is a fatal disease with high mortality that mostly affects patients with end stage kidney disease (ESKD) on dialysis. In recent years the incidence of CUA has been increasing among patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD). The exact mechanism and risk factors are not well described.
